The first of four volumes, published during the years 1873-1876, it is considered to be the archetypal, erotic Victorian novel. Young Charlie Roberts exudes an insatiable sexual appetite. His proclivities are awakened by Mrs Benson, a friend of the family. Charlie immediately applies his knowledge in sexual encounters with siblings and in the ultimate wooing of the exquisite family governess, Miss Emily.
Originally banned in the United States, scenes of various sexual activities may shock many modern listeners.

if this was the complete story
no. i found it misleading to offer the audio book without being clear it was only the first volume.
not the issue
when you sell an audio book you should make it clear that is in incomplete.
The dialogue at times don't come out naturally enough from the female side. Male sounds too ok when voice narrator's younger self. Needs a larger cast. Still overall enjoyable. Hopefully all volumes get translated.
